The turbo is definitely worth shopping around for... as long as you don't mind the bad gas mileage and requirement for premium fuel.

GTs have a turbo yes (but other models do to) that puts out 230 hp. The other versions put out 215 hp.

Theres some interior differences as well like 140 mph speedometer, carbon fiber look on dash and guages, GT on the floor mats and GT on the rear hatch.



The suspension is more firmer and all have 4 wheel disc brakes with fronts being bigger. But i have seen so many options that could have been ordered that you cant allways be sure. I have seen base models ordered with 4 wheel disc and all sorts of combinations.

The HP level is programmed in the PCM. You can program it to make the same as a GT if your running the lite version though.

YEs, different springs, different shocks and struts, 4 wheel disc brakes, different radiator and fan, ABS, traction control, leather seats(on most), different PS Pump and reservoir, different rack fast ratio.

'03 = 215 hp
'04 - '05 1/2 = 220 hp
'05 1/2 - the last GT year = 230 hp

The plastic manifold added 10 hp starting in the last half of '05.
All lites are 180 hp.
